I can't argue with Schluter. Ditra is his product, he's done the testing, and he's providing the warranty. You do it any other way, you're on your own.

You can use either caulk for that joint, but 100% silicone will likely last longer and hold its appearance better.

Take off the door jambs/trim, then use a right angle grinder with 4" diamond wheel to cut the tile and underlayment. If you cut into the rough framing, no big deal, except for the smoke.

If you have to drive 2-1/2 hours, take all the boxes back. Check the new tile against what you are keeping. If you have to change your enntire floor design, you won't have to make another trip.
